TW2.1.01 (Tower Two)
This panel examines how effectively policy makers are responding to the recent rises in youth unemployment. It examines supply and demand side policies addressing family inequalities, reforms to apprenticeships and active labour market policies for youth, in particular assessing these against the backdrop of the EU youth employment package and the ‘youth guarantee’. Papers can address both the political economy of labour market (de)regulation and the socio-economic consequences of segmented labour markets. They can focus on program design and implementation in different countries or sectors , but also on assessing the effectiveness of such policy innovations.
